LIU Brooklyn English Professor Barbara Henning will be leading a workshop called From Journal to Poem at Poets House.
Here's Professor Henning's description "In this workshop we’ll develop multiple ways of gathering material through writing and experimenting with journaling, researching and taking notes. We’ll explore walking/writing meditation, layered journaling, collaging from news and other resources, and more. Readings will be from Matsuo Basho, Harry Mathews, Jack Kerouac, Harryette Mullen, William Carlos Williams, Helene Cixous, Bernadette Mayer and Ed Sanders, among others. Students will leave the class with a collection of five poems or short prose pieces."
